A Bouquet for You

I've only used this pretty Amuse bouquet once before - thought it was time to get it out and play again.

supplies: white card stock, amuse studio Southern Bouquet, alcohol markers, sentiment from Simon's Summer Garden, Lil' Inker Circles and Diamonds Stitched Pattern cover die, May Arts twine, adhesive foam squares

Since this card is pretty CAS, I decided to wrap the bouquet with real twine this time for a little more dimension.  I think this is a perfect card for so many occasions.

I made this card earlier this week, and after watching the Royal Wedding yesterday, I was inspired by Princess Meghan's sweet bouquet to use it again.  I first thought I'd leave the flowers all white and just color in the leaves, but I ended up using some pastels lightly to make the flowers stand out from each other.  I also coated them in some Wink of Stella.

supplies: white, black, and pale aqua card, Southern Bouquet, sentiment from Simon's Floral Bliss, Winnie & Walter Noelle cutaway scalloped rectangle die, markers and colored pencils

Hope you're enjoying your Sunday - thanks for coming by!
